Spiced eggplant saladUsing the same principles as tofu, I have decided to embrace the eggplant and douse it in as many flavour-rich ingredients as I can.
Take a chook to the party
- 1.5kg (No. 15) chicken, cut into serving pieces
- 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
- 1⁄2 cup mango chutney
- 450g can crushed pineapple in natural juice (undrained)
- 1⁄4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
- Chopped parsley, to garnish
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan forced. Place chicken snugly, skinside up, in a baking dish. Stir together mustard, chutney, pineapple and nuts; spoon over chicken. Bake for 50 minutes, basting occasionally with juices, until chicken is tender. Sprinkle servings with parsley
To prepare chicken, trim off excess fat, rinse and pat dry on paper towels. Serve chicken and its juices over couscous if you like, and garnish with extra macadamias, toasted.
